The Cat and the King


Quality initial chapter books for new readers are frustratingly thin on the ground. Thank heavens for ‘The Cat and the King’ from the much-loved illustrator and children’s writer Nick Sharratt!

When a devastating castle fire forces the King and loyal servant Cat to move to 37 Castle Close, the new royal resident must adjust to ordinary life and ways. His helpful neighbours, the Cromwells, help him, and Cat, acclimatise.

The Cat and the King‘ is a gentle, warm, truly lovely book, one to share, read alone and reread, with delight.
